Regulatory Status Legend
The OX-19 antibody reacts with CD5, a 69 kDa cell-surface glycoprotein found on thymocytes, peripheral T lymphocytes, and some thymic dendritic cells, but not on alloantigen-activated cytotoxic T cells, NK cells, γδ TCR-bearing intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes, or dendritic epidermal T cells. A CD5+ subset of B lymphocytes has not been characterized in the rat. In the mouse and human, CD72 is the major ligand for CD5. While the OX-19 antibody is not mitogenic, its presence augments in vitro proliferative responses of T cells to lectins and allogeneic cells.
This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
